Hi folks,

I have a Windows 7 users on a Windows 2008 R2 domain who can no longer access her redirected My Documents folder in her user share on the server. The permissions were recently modified to allow administrator access to the folder but now she cannot access the My Documents folder at all, even after granting her full control and ownership of the folder.

She used to be on a Windows XP machine a few months ago and was upgraded to a machine with Windows 7. But this issue only occurred since they ownership of the My Documents folder was changed to administrator so admins could get some required files in it.

My apologies if I have left out any detail you might need, just let me know, but does anyone now how to fix this? I'm not getting very far with anything I am finding online and trial and error.

Thanks in advance.

Have you checked the actual share permission vs the file permissions.. is the home folder shared?  If so what are those permissions?
